Hammin' it up for the camera
Baby is almost 15 months old! And learning new things every day! He is definitely getting taller, as he can reach the doorknob now and we can see his little head when he is behind the couch. He has slimmed down a little as he now fits a size 5 diaper......even though he still wears a 6 during the night. He is still wearing size 2/3 depending on the brand name in clothing and some of the clothes that he wore at Christmas are really, really roomy. He is wearing his size 7 Nike shocks that he received for his birthday and they fit him well. He slept 11 hours the other night, we think that was the second time in his life that he did that.......but 3 nights out of the week, he will usually sleep 9 or 10 hours straight through. It's really nice when he does it, but it is very unpredictable, and it varies from night to night. At one point last month, he actually did it for 3 nights in a row......but that is rare. Other than his crummy sleeping habits, he is pretty much perfect!! He says Baby, Pop and Beep Beep very clearly, but Bee is a Ball, Aphmm is still an apple, Manana is a banana, Dada is Daddy, Aampa is Grandpa and Bosco and I seem to have become Papa or Bapa. Hockey, yucky and cookie all sound the same. He will not say Mama, no matter how hard we try to get him to say it, and he says Oh,hmm for oh oh. When he is eating something he really likes, he says, Mmmmm. He babbles A LOT. Deebedee, gollygollygolly, deebita, cute little sounds......it really is fun to listen to him. He pretends to count......and he is simply adorable when he does Set Hut, touches the ground and takes off running. He will sit and shred a Kleenex for 20 minutes or more, and very rarely eats it. Still loves his books and his balls.......those are his favorite toys and have been for awhile. He has learned how to manipulate a spoon when eating and it's a hit or miss, but mostly a hit. He loves to eat, and polished off a fair amount of spaghetti and meat sauce for dinner tonight. He is funny as he won't eat any type of pasta except spaghetti noodles. The fusilli, penne and macaroni get thrown to the floor every time! But he LOVES rice and potatoes. His favorite veggie is probably squash, but he really does love every fruit and vegetable. He will only drink water out of his sippy cup, and milk only comes from a bottle in his world. Still drools a lot and only has 8 teeth. Funny little guy, with a very likable personality and we love him so very, very much!!!!
